This Vegan Whipped Feta Dip is BEYOND addicting! The whipped dip is topped with oven roasted tomatoes and Calabrian chili paste for a little kick!
You NEED to make this Vegan Whipped Feta Dip for your next party - mostly so you don't eat the whole batch like I did! The creamy dip is amazing on its own, but the addition of the burst tomatoes, garlic, Calabrian chili paste and fresh basil, takes this to the next level. Serve it up with toasted bread and be prepared to be addicted.
How to Roast the Tomatoes
These roasted tomatoes are super easy and add so much flavor to this dish! Add the cherry tomatoes to a baking dish and drizzle with a good chug of olive oil. Chop up a couple cloves of garlic and add them to the tomatoes. Sprinkle on some salt & pepper and give everything a good toss. Place in the oven at 425 and roast for 20-25 minutes, or until the tomatoes have started to burst.
Remove the tomatoes from the oven and allow them to cool slightly. This will keep them from melting the dip.
How to Make Vegan Whipped Feta Dip
The feta I used for this dip is from Trader Joe's and it is my absolute favorite. If you can't get your hands on it, there are some other brands out there that should work as well.
Drain and crumble the feta and add it to a food processor with non-dairy yogurt, non-dairy mayo, garlic, lemon zest and dried herbs. To get that nice creamy texture, run the food processor longer than you think you need to. And be sure to scrape down the sides as you go.
Once everything is nice and combined, place the dip in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes.
How to Serve the Dip
It is now time to assemble. Spread the feta dip out in a bowl. Spoon the tomatoes over the dip - being sure to get plenty of the the tomato juices/oil.
Now, to make this dip extra special (and add a kick), I also added some Calabrian chili paste. I am so obsessed with this stuff. It just adds something extra special.
And lastly, drop on some fresh basil.
I like to serve this with toasted baguette slices. You could also serve it with pita bread or some thick cut veggies.

I made this last night for a family get together (vegans & non-vegans) and everyone LOVED it! I will definitely be making this again soon 🙂
I made this recipe for a group of friends last month and a football party last week. My wife and I are the only vegans in the group with the exception of one friend. Everyone loves this dip! My Mom just texted me for the recipe so she can make it for her friends. This recipe is a sure thing!
Yayyy! So glad it was a hit!
Thanks so much Lindsay!
